  • sigma 5/2017: Assurances des entreprises (PDF, 521kb)

    20 October 2017

    Les macrotendances technologiques, économiques, démographiques, sociétales et géopolitiques engendrent de profonds changements de l’environnement commercial. Ces changements structurels créent de nouvelles opportunités, mais aussi de nouveaux risques. Dans le même temps, le monde de l’entreprise, autrefois dominé par les actifs matériels, tire aujourd’hui plus de valeur des actifs intangibles. Ces transformations et les expositions qui en découlent se reflètent dans les enquêtes sur la perception des risques par les entreprises. Par exemple, la perte d’exploitation constitue à l’heure actuelle la première préoccupation des entreprises, selon des enquêtes réalisées auprès de professionnels des risques à travers le monde.

    Die technologischen, wirtschaftlichen, demografischen, gesellschaftlichen und geopolitischen Makrotrends unserer Zeit führen zu grundlegenden Veränderungen im Unternehmensumfeld. Diese strukturellen Veränderungen schaffen neue Chancen,
    aber sie bergen auch neue Risiken. Gleichzeitig hat sich der Unternehmenssektor gewandelt und wird nun zunehmend nicht mehr von materiellen, sondern von im- materiellen Vermögenswerten dominiert. Diese Transformationen und die damit einhergehenden Gefährdungspotenziale spiegeln sich in Umfragen zur Risikowahrnehmung in Unternehmen wider. So sind Unterbrechungen der Geschäftstätigkeit laut weltweiten Umfragen
    von Risikoexperten heute das meistgefürchtete Risiko bei
    Unternehmen, und dieses Risiko steht immer häufiger in
